Harriet Lefton of TipRanks

TipRanks, a service that ranks Wall Street analysts, identified the top players in technology coverage and found which stocks they like for the second half of 2017. We use a natural language-processing algorithm to rank analysts based on two factors:

  • Average return of buy-sell recommendations
  • Success rate of buy-sell recommendations

TipRanks' stock screener allows you to screen for "best analyst consensus" stocks in the technology sector, revealing stocks with a "Strong Buy" best analyst consensus rating. We combined the screener's insights with a database scan to find the most popular tech stocks by top analysts right now.

Here are five favorite stocks from the best-performing technology analysts for 2H17.
